MUSLIM SISTERHOOD:

Afghanistan Appoints First-Ever Woman Governor (Michael Kitchen, 03 March 2005, VOA News)

Afghanistan has appointed its first female provincial governor in keeping with the new government's policy of promoting women to positions of power.

Interior Minister Ali Jalali announced the appointment of Habiba Sarobi as Afghanistan's first ever-female governor.

Mr. Jalali says the appointment was originally suggested by his ministry and is part of a wider reorganizing of provincial-governor posts.

Ms. Sarobi will head the government of Bamiyan, a central Afghan province inhabited mostly by members of the ethnic Hazara minority.


If your governor is a woman, thank Osama.

The Hazara, a people who speak a language closely related to Farsi and who are assumed to be infiltrated by Iranian agents. This is very interesting.
